With over 8 million customers, 30 million monthly visits and 16 million products, bol.com is the largest retailer in The Netherlands and Belgium. Over 1.300 people – including more than 350 IT-professionals, and 60+ Scrum teams – strive to make bol.com into the best, most customer-centric shopping platform possible. In order to fulfill that ambition, we must facilitate the business with actionable insights, so it can make fact-driven decisions. Does that sound like your natural playing field? And do you combine BI skills with a passion for big data?
As a Business Intelligence Engineer you are a member of an autonomous Scrum team, and responsible for developing, deploying and running your software on the BI platform. Your goal is straightforward: develop quick, scalable reporting solutions that really help the business with its decision making process. You work in tandem with the business, cater solutions to its wishes, whilst leveraging scalability, performance and durability aspects. In short, together with your colleagues, you create and run the service oriented BI architecture. Although the goal is straightforward, you overcome complex challenges in a high-performance environment.
Our BI landscape is a combination of a Hadoop big data platform (with Platfora as an analytics tool) and an Oracle environment with OBIEE as a reporting tool. We process millions of data records each day, and utilize big data insights to the fullest, so we can personalize the shopping experience for all our customers. This also means you need to be future-oriented, because in time, you’ll play a pivotal role in developing BI solutions for our big data platform.
